Wanted: One Webmaster

Inquire Within

On November 1, 2018, I will be letting go of the reins of the Club web presence that I have held since early in 1997. I have gone from hand-coding html hosted for free on something called Geocities to a WordPress blog hosted on GoDaddy with our very own domain name, MastersMiataClub.com. It has been fun, but after 21 years it has worn out it’s welcome. Maintaining the site itself is not hard, but wrangling content has become a real challenge.

Keeping it like it is for the hundred something dollars a year, going to just Facebook for free, an online newsletter program or just using an email list, anyway we go, there needs to be someone to keep it updated. This could be you, email me at brian.the.red@gmail.com

I will certainly be available to help anyone get started with the current system or help transition to something else.

Heads Up for NC Owners

A little note from Larry Garner for those of you whose Miatas are from 2006-2009:

We recently got some coverage for Ritas’ mom and got away for a few days and visited friends in Helen, GA, and drove some of the great roads in the area. We get back and after the NC sat for a few days, noticed a small puddle of fluid underneath.

An exam finds that the top of the radiator reserve, where the cap sits has cracked and separated under pressure. On further info search, I read that this part has a life of about 10-years; our car was built in 11/07. Glad it didn’t happen on that trip.

Kinda like when we drove the NA to Niagara Falls in 2012 (2400 miles) and two weeks after we get home, I find a hair line crack in the original radiator.

One thing I’m finding is that parts for the NA are very plentiful and inexpensive but not so much on the NC. There is an upgrade for the NC, in aluminum, but it’s $250, while the OEM one is around $70 or so on-line. I have one on order and it’s an easy swap.
